Off colour Blues see off Broad­street

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - NA­TIONAL TWO NORTH

a bright start and the hosts had fine de­fence from scrum half Jor­dan Brookes and lock Har­ri­son Lewis to thank for keep­ing the scores level.

The open­ing try came on 15 min­utes, fine work from The Blues’ pack en­sured skip­per Mike Finnemore could get around the fringe and dot down. Lewis Barker con­verted for a 7-0 half time lead.

Mac­cles­field came out af­ter half time and got off to a blis­ter­ing start, scor­ing a try started and fin­ished by full back Matt O’Re­gan. The missed con­ver­sion meant it was 12-0.

The vis­i­tors then put a sus­tained pe­riod of pres­sure on the Mac­cles­field line but fine de­fence from The Blues, with debu­tant Joe Palmer key, kept the op­po­si­tion at bay.

Broad­street failed to get off the mark un­til just be­fore the hour mark, fly-half Lee Chapman with the three points.

This was can­celled out on 72 min­utes by a Macc penalty by Barker, and a late yel­low to Broad­street’s Chris Ide­hen helped to con­sol­i­date The Blues vic­tory and keep the Cheshire side at the top of Na­tional Two North.
